In this paper, the authors summarizes the work used to improve Low Energy Adaptive Cluster Hierarchy (LEACH) algorithm and proposes a new protocol \"Seeded LEACH-KED\" in order to increase the network lifetime and then compare its result with the LEACH, LEACH-C and LEACH-KED. Prolonging network lifetime is the way to provide energy efficient WSNs. This paper is inspired by the fact that LEACH occupies a very important position in the area of wireless sensor networks. Most of the hierarchical routing algorithms, aiming to prolonging network lifetime, have been derived from the LEACH.
